It started on February 5th with the first seeds going into the trays!
I planted 18 New Girl Tomatoes, 18 Celebrity tomatoes, 9 Nero di Toscana cabbage, aka dinosaur kale, and 9 romaine Lettuce. This was very exciting! I have never grown kale before. I was however a little heart-broken when the package said it prefers weather below 75 degrees. I’m not sure it is going to the like Arkansas’ summer. Oh, how I dream of having garden fresh greens and tomatoes ripe at the same time! My romaine usually bolts right before I start to get tomatoes. Oh well, seeds are planted and I may go search my garden catalogs for some Summer lettuce to add in the next round of seed starts.
This morning I awoke to a wonderful surprise! Sprouts!
Let the gardening season begin! What are you growing? Do you have any recommendations for lettuce that will grow in the Arkansas Summer heat?
